Abneesh Roy, Tanmay Sharma and Alok Shah analysts at Edelweiss said, “Dominos India’s SSG growth is expected to be ~2.0% YoY dip in Q1FY18 (on a base of 3.2% YoY dip; 7.5% dip in Q4FY17 on a base of 2.9% YoY) even though the company ran Everyday values and IPL being present in Q1FY18.”
Motilal sees same-store sales growth (SSG) to be likely down by 3% for this quarter.
On the other hand, analysts at Kotak Institutional Equities said, “We model 3% SSG and ~8% top-line growth aided by 'Everyday value offer'; we have modeled 15 Dominos store additions and no addition in DD.”

Edelweiss said, “Gross margins will be under pressure due to increase in raw material prices. Implementation of GST will lead to may lead to some disruption in the business.”
However, Kotak feels EBITDA margin to expand 150 basis points yoy, despite 130 basis points contraction in GM, aided by stringent cost controls.
Phillip Capital also stated gross margins to remain stable qoq and meanwhile EBITDA growth will be led by cost control.
Further Phillip mentioned earnings growth will be slightly lower than EBITDA growth due to higher depreciation.
Bottom-line (PAT) of Jubilant is seen at Rs 18.1 crore, down by 4.73% year-on-year but up by 21.47% on quarter-on-quarter, as per Motilal.
